This is one of the lightest ranges of avalanche airbag backpacks available.

Weighing in at only 2140g for the whole system, including the cartridge!

  • The backpack weighs 1140g
  • The AVA weighs 690g
  • The cylinder weighs 310g

The bag has a capacity of 28ltr as the airbag only takes up 1.8ltrs of space.

This is a specially designed avalanche backpack with a shorter slimmer back length, ideal for women, juniors and smaller men.

The bag is of such a low weight because of the materials used in the production. Ortovox use and abrasion resistant and extremely light 100 D Robic Ripstop nylon.

This bag is also very comfortable to wear and has all the extras you would expect from an Ortovox avalanche bag. The weight is well distributed with good waist belt and shoulder straps.

It has a circular front zipper for quick access. Diagonal ski attachment, ice axe holder and a rope fastening..

You can practice activating this pack again and again without attaching the cartridge enabling you to feel really comfortable about using it.

Avabag airbag systems use a carbon cylinder, these are now the same price as the older ABS steel cylinders, so it’s a win, win situation, please note we do not advise using Ortovox carbon cylinders in other airbag makes.
